How to disassemble the read heads on a linear scale:

  • Remove the screws of the end caps on the linear scale.
  • Carefully remove the read head, and be careful that there is glass inside, this can be very fragile.
  • You should clean the glass if it is dirty, you can use wet wipes or moisten the cotton ball with rubbing alcohol to scrub the glass, and keep it clean and dry.

And how you can assemble a read head into a linear scale aluminum profile:

  1. Place the aluminum alloy vertically, install the reading head from top to bottom, and pay attention to placing the cables and springs in the correct position
  2. Fasten the screws on two ends of the linear scale, sometimes you can use glue to smear two ends before fastening the screws so the linear scale can be much more waterproofed.
